Iowa has a crucial game in the race for a Top 4 finish in the Big Ten, good thing they're headed to
But Iowa does enter this game with one bit of good news: for the first time in 14 years (!), Iowa is ranked higher than Michigan State in the AP Poll heading into an Iowa-MSU clash.
Tuesday will be the first time in 14 years that Iowa (#18) is ranked higher than Michigan State (#24) in the AP Poll when playing; the No. 20 #Hawkeyes beat an unranked Spartan team on March 11, 2006 in the Big Ten Tournament (53-48). pic.twitter.com/3RUFMWu8xf— Iowa Basketball (@IowaHoops) February 24, 2020
Iowa won that game back in 2006. Let's hope for history to repeat itself here.
The usual rules apply.
